De Waal Park, Gardens, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa


Beneath Table Mountain, in the heart of Cape Town, lies De Waal Park, a beautiful oasis away from the bustle of city life. The park is cherished as a serene meeting place for a diverse community of Capetonians, including slack-rope walkers, picnickers, tree and bird enthusiasts, runners, families and dog owners. Dogs delight in the pond around the Victorian fountain, a cool retreat in summer, while children play on swings and roundabouts

The park is a venue for the popular Summer Concerts series that runs on Sunday afternoons from March to April. Concerts are free, start at 15:00 and range from classical to rock.

Together with the City of Cape Town, The Friends of De Waal Park Association ensures the park is kept clean and safe and is regularly upgraded and well maintained.
